Open for lunch and dinner. Chuck's Fish specializes in fresh fish and shellfish from the Gulf Coast. All their seafood comes from their own wholesale market in Destin, Florida. The fish is strictly hook and line caught by either their own boats or boats they have contracts with. When possible, they use local produce and meats are all hand cut, either in house or by local markets. The owner started Harbor Docks restaurant in Destin back in 1979. He owns a couple other restaurants on the Gulf Coast and another Chuck's Fish in Tuscaloosa, which seems to have gotten high marks, including for its sushi. A July 2009 City Scene review complained that while the restaurant is attractive, it is LOUD. Service, however, is expert, and reviewer Tom Gaskin gave high marks for Uptown shrimp, Red dragon sushi roll. Crab cakes were tasteful but not as good as some others in town. Fresh catch of tuna was "perfectly cooked and delicately seasoned." Seafood choices are "innovative with some expected standbys."
